WE FOCUS

Shepherdwise focuses specifically on the world of project management. We live it. We love it.  We are constantly considering how to help our clients complete better projects in better ways. All of our approaches and methods are proven, but are also being honed as we continue to grow in our craft.

WE HAVE WIDE EXPERIENCE

Though our approaches have been honed and proven in the extremely challenging healthcare information technology arena in recent years, Shepherdwise has experience in other industries such as telecom, financial, higher education, pharmaceuticals, software development and non-profits.

WE’RE PRACTICAL AND ADAPTABLE

Every organization is different. Every project is different. Though core foundational concepts apply to any project in any organization, those concepts must be wisely adapted to be as practical as possible.  Shepherdwise sees this as paramount in helping clients succeed.

WE HAVE AN INTEGRATED MINDSET

Program and project management do not happen in a vacuum. They closely align with the strategic portfolio and have significant impact and interaction with process management and improvement. Shepherdwise considers this larger picture in all of our services and approaches.
